Safety precautions
To use the printer safely
If you DO NOT follow these safety instructions, there is a possibility of a fire, electrical shock, burn or
suffocation. Please keep these instructions for later reference and read them before attempting any
maintenance.
WARNING
There are high voltage electrodes inside the printer. Before you clean the inside of the printer, make sure
that you have turned off the power switch and unplugged the printer from the AC power outlet.
DO NOT handle the plug with wet hands. Doing this might cause an electrical shock.
Always make sure the plug is fully inserted.
This product must be installed near an AC power outlet that is easily accessible. In case of an emergency,
you must disconnect the power cord from the AC power outlet to shut off the power completely.
Lightning and power surges can damage this product! We recommend that you use a quality surge
protection device on the AC power line, or unplug the cords during a lightning storm.
Avoid using this product during an electrical storm. There may be a remote risk of electric shock from
lightning.
ii
DO NOT use this product to report a gas leak in the vicinity of the leak.
Use only the power cord provided with the machine.
Plastic bags are used in the packaging of your machine. To avoid danger of suffocation, keep these bags
away from babies and children.
DO NOT use flammable substances, any type of spray or an organic solvent/liquid containing alcohol or
ammonia to clean the inside or outside of the machine. Doing this may cause a fire or electrical shock. See
Cleaning on page 106 for how to clean the machine.
DO NOT use a vacuum cleaner to clean up scattered toner. Doing this might cause the toner dust to ignite
inside the vacuum cleaner, potentially starting a fire. Carefully clean the toner dust with a dry, lint-free cloth
and dispose of it according to local regulations.
Cleaning the outside of the printer:
Make sure that you have unplugged the printer from the AC power outlet.
Use neutral detergents. Cleaning with volatile liquids such as thinner or benzine will damage the outside
surface of the printer.
DO NOT use cleaning materials that contain ammonia.
iii

„ Use paper that is 75 to 90 g/m2 (20 to 24 lb).
„ Use neutral paper. Do not use acidic or alkaline paper.
„ Use long-grain paper.
„ Use paper with a moisture content of approximately 5%.
„ This printer can use recycled paper that meets DIN 19309 specifications.
IMPORTANT
DO NOT use ink jet paper because it may cause a paper jam or damage your printer.
If you use paper that is not recommended, a paper jam or misfeed may occur in the printer.
DO NOT put different types of paper in the paper tray at the same time because it may cause paper jams
or misfeeds.
Note
• Preprinted paper must use ink that can withstand the temperature of the printer's fusing process (200
degrees centigrade).
• If you use bond paper, paper having a rough surface or paper that is wrinkled or creased, the paper may
exhibit degraded performance.

Printing Methods
Types of envelopes
2
Most envelopes will be suitable for your printer. However, some envelopes may have feed and print quality
problems due to the way they have been made. A suitable envelope should have edges with straight, wellcreased folds and the leading edge should not be thicker than two pieces of paper. The envelope should lie
flat and not be of baggy or flimsy construction. You should buy quality envelopes from a supplier who
understands that you will be using the envelopes in a laser printer. Before you print a lot of envelopes, test
one to make sure that the print results are what you want.
Brother does not recommend a particular envelope because envelope manufacturers may change the
envelope specifications. You are responsible for the quality and performance of the envelopes you use.
„ DO NOT use damaged, curled, wrinkled, irregularly shaped, extremely shiny or textured envelopes.
„ DO NOT use envelopes with clasps, snaps, tie strings, self-adhesive components, windows, holes,
cutouts or perforations.
„ DO NOT use envelopes that are of a baggy construction, not sharply creased, embossed (have raised
writing on them) or pre-printed on the inside.
„ DO NOT use envelopes that were previously printed by a laser printer.
„ DO NOT use envelopes that cannot be arranged when put in a pile.
„ DO NOT use envelopes that are made of paper that weighs more than the paper weight specifications for
the printer.
„ DO NOT use envelopes that have been badly made, with edges that are not straight or consistently
square.
If you use any of the types of envelopes listed above, they may damage your printer. This damage is not
covered under any Brother warranty or service agreement.
Note
• DO NOT print envelopes using duplex printing.
• You must choose the same paper size from your application as the paper in the tray.

Routine Maintenance
IMPORTANT
For USA and Canada
Brother strongly recommends that you do not refill the toner cartridge provided with your printer. We also
strongly recommend that you continue to use only genuine Brother brand replacement toner cartridges. Use
or attempted use of potentially incompatible toner and/or cartridges in the Brother machine may cause
damage to the machine and/or may result in unsatisfactory print quality. Our warranty coverage does not
apply to any problem that is caused by the use of unauthorized third party toner and/or cartridges. To protect
your investment and obtain premium performance from the Brother machine, we strongly recommend the
use of genuine Brother supplies.
6
IMPORTANT
For UK and other countries
Brother machines are designed to work with toner of a particular specification and will work to a level of
optimum performance when used with genuine Brother branded toner cartridges. Brother cannot guarantee
this optimum performance if toner or toner cartridges of other specifications are used. Brother does not
therefore recommend the use of cartridges other than genuine Brother branded cartridges with this
machine.
If damage is caused to the drum unit or other part of this machine as a result of using other manufacturer's
products with this machine, any repairs required as a result may not be covered by the warranty.

Routine Maintenance
Drum unit
6
A new drum unit can print approximately 25,000 A4 or Letter size single-sided pages at 1 per/ job.
Note
• There are many factors that determine the actual drum life, such as the temperature, humidity, type of
paper, type of toner used and so on. Under ideal conditions, the average drum life is estimated at
approximately 25,000 pages. The actual number of pages that your drum will print may be significantly
less than this estimate. Because we have no control over the many factors that determine the actual
drum life, we cannot guarantee a minimum number of pages that will be printed by your drum.
• For best performance, use only genuine Brother toner. The printer should be used only in a clean, dustfree environment with adequate ventilation.
• Printing with a third-party drum unit may reduce not only the print quality but also the quality and life of
the printer itself. Warranty coverage does not apply to problems caused by the use of a third-party drum
unit.
Drum End Soon message

First, make sure that you are using paper that meets Brother recommended paper specifications. (See About
paper on page 6.)
Problem
The printer does not feed
paper.
Recommendation
„ If there is paper in the paper tray, make sure it is straight. If the paper is curled,
flatten it, before printing. Sometimes it is helpful to remove the paper. Turn the
stack over and put it back in the paper tray.
„ Reduce the amount of paper in the paper tray, and then try again.
„ Make sure that manual feed mode is not chosen in the printer driver.
„ Clean the paper pick-up roller. See Cleaning the paper pick-up roller on
page 111.
The printer does not feed paper
from the MP tray.
„ Fan the paper well and put it back in firmly.
The printer does not feed
envelopes.
„ The printer can feed envelopes from the multi-purpose tray. You must set up your
application to print on the size of envelopes you are using. This is usually done in
the page setup or document setup menu of your software. (See your application
manual.)
A paper jam has occurred.
„ Clear the jammed paper. (See Paper jams and how to clear them on page 120.)
The printer does not print.
„ Make sure that the cable is connected to the printer.
„ Make sure that you have chosen the MP Tray in the Paper Source of the printer
driver.
„ Make sure the printer is powered on and that no error LEDs are lit on the printer
control panel.
„ Make sure that you have chosen the correct printer driver.
When printing on normal paper,
it creases.
„ Change the printer driver setting in Media Type to a thin setting.
The paper slides off the top
output tray.
„ Pull out and lift up the output tray support flap.

Paper jams and how to clear them
7
Jam MP tray / Tray1 / Tray2 / Tray3 / Inside
7
If a paper jam occurs inside the MP tray or paper tray, the printer will flash the Paper LED as shown below.
7
CAUTION
After you have just used the printer, some internal parts of the printer will be extremely hot. To prevent
injury, when you open the front cover or back cover (back output tray) of the printer, DO NOT touch the
shaded parts shown in the illustration. If you do this, you may get burned.
Clear the jammed paper as follows.
If the jammed paper is removed completely by following the steps below, you can install the paper tray, and
then close the front cover. The printer will resume printing automatically.
If the printer does not start printing automatically, press Go. If the printer still does not start printing, check
that all the remaining jammed paper has been removed from the printer. Then try printing again.
120
Troubleshooting
Note
• Always remove all paper from the paper tray and straighten the stack when you add new paper. This
helps prevent multiple sheets of paper from feeding through the printer at one time and prevents paper
jams.
• Please confirm that you have installed both a toner cartridge and a drum unit in the machine. If you have
not installed a drum unit or have installed the drum unit improperly, then this may cause a paper jam in
your Brother machine.

Appendix
Important information for choosing your paper
0
This section gives information to help you choose paper to use with this printer.
Note
If you use paper that is not recommended, a paper jam or misfeed may occur in the printer. (See
Recommended paper on page 8.)
Before you buy a large quantity of paper
0
Make sure that the paper is suitable for the printer.
Paper for plain paper copies
0
Paper is divided by usage, such as paper for printing and paper for copying. The usage is usually written on
the paper’s package. Check the package to see whether it is suitable for laser printers. Use paper that is
suitable for laser printers.
Basis weight
0
The basis weight of the paper in general use varies in different countries. We recommend that you use paper
that weighs 75 to 90 g/m2 (20 to 24 lb), although this printer is able to print on thinner or thicker paper than
these weights.

Long grain and short grain
0
The pulp fiber of the paper is aligned during paper manufacturing. And paper can be classified into two types,
long grain and short grain.
Long grain paper fibers run in the same direction as the long edge of the paper. Short grain paper fibers run
perpendicular to the long edge of the paper. Though most plain paper for copying is long grain, some is short
grain. We recommend that you use long grain paper for this printer. Short grain paper is too weak for the
paper transport of the printer.
Acid paper and neutralized paper
0
Paper can be classified as either acid paper or neutralized paper.
Though modern paper manufacture methods started with acid paper, neutralized paper is recently taking the
place of acid paper because of environmental issues.
However, many forms of acid paper can be found in recycled paper. We recommend that you use neutralized
paper for this printer.
You can use an acid paper check pen to distinguish acid paper from neutral paper.
145
Appendix
Print surface
0
The characteristics of the face side and reverse side of a sheet of paper may vary a little.
Usually, the opening side of the paper ream package is the print side. Follow the indications on the paper
package. Typically, the print side is indicated by an arrow.
Moisture content
0
Moisture content is the amount of water left in the paper after manufacture. It is one of the important
characteristics of the paper. This can change greatly depending on the storage environment, although usually
paper contains about 5% water by weight. Because paper often absorbs water, the amount of water can
sometimes be about 10% in a high humidity environment. When the amount of water increases, the
characteristics of the paper changes greatly. The fixing of the toner may become worse. For storage of the
paper and during use, we recommend that the humidity of the surrounding environment be between 50% and
60%.

This bar code command can have the following parameters in the parameter segment (n ... n). As parameters
are effective within the single command syntax ESC i n ... n \, they do not apply in the bar code commands.
If certain parameters are not given, they take the preset settings. The last parameter must be the bar code
data start (‘b’ or ‘B’) or the expanded character data start (‘l’ or ‘L’). Other parameters can be given in any
sequence. Each parameter can start with a lower-case or upper-case character, for example, ‘t0’ or ‘T0’, ‘s3’
or ‘S3’ and so one.

n = ‘b’ or ‘B’
Data that follows ‘b’ or ‘B’ is read in as bar code data. Bar code data must end with the ‘ \ ’ code (5CH), which
also ends this command. The acceptable bar code data is determined by the bar code mode selected by ‘t’
or ‘T’.
„ When CODE 39 is chosen with the parameter ‘t0’ or ‘T0’
Forty three characters ‘0’ to ‘9’, ‘A’ to ‘Z’, ‘-’, ‘ . ’, ‘ (space)’, ‘$’, ‘ / ’, ‘+’, and ‘%’ can be accepted as bar code
data. Other characters will cause a data error. The number of characters for bar codes is not limited. The
bar code data automatically starts and ends with an asterisk ‘ * ’ (start character and stop character). If the
received data has an asterisk ‘ * ’ at the beginning or end, the asterisk is regarded as a start character or
stop character.
„ When Interleaved 2 of 5 is selected with the parameter ‘t1’ or ‘T1’:
Ten numerical characters ‘0’ to ‘9’ can be accepted as bar code data. Other characters cause a data error.
The number of characters for bar codes is not limited. This mode of bar codes needs even characters. If
the bar code data has odd characters, ‘0’ is automatically added to the end of the bar code data.
„ When FIM (US-Post Net) is selected with the parameter ‘t3’ or ‘T3’
Characters ‘A’ to ‘D’ are valid and one digit of data can be printed. Upper-case and lower-case alphabet
characters can be accepted.
„ When Post Net (US-Post Net) is selected with the parameter ‘t4’ or ‘T4’
Numbers ‘0’ to ‘9' can be data and it must end with a check digit. ‘?’ can be used instead of the check digit.
153

Appendix
„ When EAN 8, EAN 13, or UPC A is selected with the parameter ‘t5’ or ‘T5’
Ten numbers ‘0’ to ‘9’ can be accepted as bar code data. The number of characters for bar codes is limited
as follows:
EAN 8: Total 8 digits (7 digits + 1 check digit)
EAN 13: Total 13 digits (12 digits + 1 check digit)
UPC A: Total 12 digits (11 digits + 1 check digit)
A number of characters other than those stated above will cause a data error that results in the bar code
data being printed as normal print data. If the check digit is not correct, the printer decides the correct
check digit automatically so that the correct bar code data will be printed. When EAN13 is selected, adding
‘+’ and a two-digit or five-digit number after the data can create an add-on code.
„ When UPC-E is selected with the parameter ‘t6’ or ‘T6’:
The numbers ‘0’ to ‘9’ can be accepted as bar code data.
Eight digits 1 2
Six
digits 2
(standard format) The first character must be ‘0’ and the data must end with a check digit.
Total eight digits = ‘0’ plus 6 digits plus 1 check digit.
The first character and the last check digit are removed from the eight digit data.
1
‘?’ can be used instead of a check digit.
2
Adding ‘+’ and two-digit or five-digit number after the data creates an add-on code.
A
„ When Codebar is chosen with the parameter ‘t9’ or ‘T9’
Characters ‘0’ to ‘9’, ‘-’, ‘ . ’, ‘$’, ‘/’, ‘+’, ‘ : ’ can be printed. Characters ‘A’ to ‘D’ can be printed as a startstop code, which can be upper case or lower case. If there is no start-stop code, errors will happen. A
check digit cannot be added and using ‘?’ causes errors.
„ When Code 128 Set A, Set B, or Set C is selected with the parameter ‘t12’ or ‘T12’, ‘t13’ or ‘T13’, or ‘t14’
or ‘T14’
Code 128 sets A, B and C can be individually selected. Set A shows characters Hex 00 to 5F. Set B
includes characters Hex 20 to 7F. Set C includes the pairs 00 to 99. Switching is allowed between the code
sets by sending %A, %B, or %C. FNC 1, 2, 3, and 4 are produced with %1, %2, %3, and %4. The SHIFT
code, %S, allows temporary switching (for one character only) from set A to set B and vice versa. The ‘%’
character can be encoded by sending it twice.
„ When ISBN (EAN) is selected with the parameter ‘t130’ or ‘T130’
The same rules apply as for ‘t5’ or ‘T5’.
„ When ISBN (UPC-E) is selected with the parameter ‘t131’ or ‘T131’:
The same rules apply as for ‘t6’ or ‘T6’.
„ When EAN 128 set A, set B or set C is selected with the parameter ‘t132’ or ‘T132’, ‘t133’ or ‘T133’ or ‘t134’
or ‘T134’
The same rules apply as for ‘t12’ or ‘T12’, ‘t13’ or ‘T13’, or ‘t14’ or ‘T14’.
